Steyer Bankrolled a Clean Energy Campaign That Would Result in Thousands of Job Losses

Billionaire environmentalist Tom Steyer has single-handedly funded the entire operations of a group known as Clean Energy for a Healthy Arizona according to the latest campaign finance reports.

The group is pushing to “amend Arizona’s constitution and require 50 percent of the state’s electricity originate from renewable energy sources.”

According to the Daily Caller, Steyer’s group NextGen Climate Action has funneled $4.45 million to the group.

The Daily Caller reported:

“Steyer, a billionaire environmental activist, used his super PAC to funnel nearly $1 million to this renewable energy campaign at the beginning of 2018. Steyer has apparently been much more generous since then. Second quarter finance reports reveal NextGen gave another $3.5 million in the last three months. Steyer’s group is the only major contributor to the initiative — by a landslide. NextGen has provided 99.99 percent of total contributions given to Clean Energy for a Healthy Arizona.”

According to the Seidman Research Institute at Arizona State University, the policies that Clean Energy for a Healthy Arizona is pushing “would result in thousands of job losses.”

And a study conducted by NERA Economic Consulting “determined that it would make no discernible difference in air quality or public health.”

“This ballot initiative is a massive fraud – bankrolled by a California billionaire, orchestrated by his California political strategists and intended to fool Arizona voters into adopting California’s costly energy regulations as our own,” a spokesman with Arizonans for Affordable Electricity said in a statement.
